to american spring wire, mr. romney hammered away at president obama for not being tough on china. not the way that he mitt romney would be tough on china. but the company mr. romney chose for his backdrop that day, the company that he chose to implicitly help make that case so happened to be a poster child for success by president obama in getting tough on china. in 2009 in the first months of president obama's presidency, american spring wire joined with two other makers to ask for help. china was unfairly dumping steel wire in the united states market at artificial low prices. they asked for help. the commerce department said they would investigate and the commerce department did move to protect american spring wire. they cracked down on china for dumping their underpriced product. thus the company was benefitted. they got the help they wanted. a company that was then used as a backdrop for mitt romney saying president obama had not been tough on china. today mr. romney gave a major address on economic policy. this is part of his closing argument for the presidency. he delivered the speech
, quote, glossy campaign video for mr. romney that described him as charismatic and authentic. and is it normal for people at a noncampaign storm relief event to carry t-shirts that attack the president? but this event turned awkward, too. governor romney's warning to slash fema so today he refused to answer questions about it. >> reporter: would you eliminate fema if you were president? would you eliminate fema if you were president? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> that didn't work, so reporters went outside and asked him again. >> reporter: governor, are you going to eliminate fema? >> reporter: governor, you haven't said what you would do with fema. why won't you answer any questions on it. >> no response. he has no answers. maybe that's why the guy who gave the keynote address at this convention is praising his opponent. >> the president has been great. the president has been all over this. the president has been outstanding. i appreciate that type of leadership. >> appreciating the president's leadership in this crisis is obviously nonpartisan
. that reference to unity in times of natural disaster mr. romney has used to dove tail into a plea for bipartisanship. arguing that for him to accomplish some of the goals that he has laid out in terms it of balancing the budget and trying to deal with the nation's economic challenges, it will take by part san coochings. he has been promising to reach across the aisle and giving examples in massachusetts capacity to do that making the argument without naming the president that his promise of hope and change northwesterly materialized. >> shepard: change in the works here. either the romney campaign sees an opening in three states that look like obama states or trying to get obama campaign to spend money in those states or maybe both. what is it? >> talking about three predominantly blue states won by president obama where the polls have always trended towards democrats this year. not towards mr. romney and the g.o.p. pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. romney's home state. in the last few days, there have been a handful of polls that the gap has narrowed and romney made ground a
or more in a major rally in ohio, mr. romney is using president obama's own rhetoric about voting against him. the president suggested that his supporters should vote for revenge mitt romney in colcalifornia spring and dubuque threw that back at the president. >> today president obama it was yesterday, you probably heard about he asked supporters to vote for revenge. i ask the american people to vote for love of country. >> mr. romny -- mr. romney said that over and over and over again in an attempt to cast mr. obama and his presidency as one of division and suggest he will unite the country and reach across the aisle in a bipartisan way. the romney complaint is that president obama made promiseless of hope and change and couldn't deliver. he couldn't because of grid lock that he caused. he simply doesn't have an administration to get things done. >> analyst said it is it like a courtroom where attorneys make the closing arguments. it is getting last, but we are hearing new lineups. >> that's right. and when you have the campaigns packing their calendars as busy as they have in 73 hours a
that and mr. romney had to reschedule, canceling to virginia to be here in ohio and a series of cascading dominoes, the obama campaign and romney campaign had to essential i put the next three days of campaigning on hold because of sandy. and there are ram am ications for that and they recognize in this race to get out the vote in just nine days, losing three or four can be critical. harris. >> harris: excellent point. carl, i want to say sometimes when the things happen at the type of events like a fairground, you get the oak ridge boys to come out. i think that's who was behind you, the music is sounding great. you've been telling us a little about how the storm, the superstorm is affecting the presidential race and laying this out. we talk about the texture of things kind of changing in at that schedule. any more details we can share? >> well, you've got to recognize that the storm is going to hit the atlanta sea cost and that will affect new hampshire, a battle ground state and virginia, a battle ground state and north carolina, is now leading fairly safely into the romney column and
and the back alleys outside the event where mr. romney today will give what his aides call the closing argument of his 2012 presidential campaign. iness spence he'll be arguing that a choice for obama amounts to stag nation and more of the status quo and a choice for romney amounts to bold change and prosperity. today mr. romney did comment on the new jobless numbers from the bureau of labor statistics, unemployed ticked up a 10th of a point. he said, the jobless rate was hire than it was when president obama took office and there are still 23 million americans struggling for work. on tuesday america will make a choice between stag nation and prosperity. romney goes onto say for four years president obama's policies have crushed america's middle class, for four years president obama has told us that things are getting better and we're making progress. for so many american families those words ring hollow. romney again will be arguing this it's really a choice between owe obama's status quo and bold proposal for prosperi prosperity. the obama campaign all romney has done is offered vague policie
president obama in the lead, 56 to 46%. here's one of mr. romney's biggest supporters. >> i feel pressure in that way. if we don't win ohio, it's tough to think we'll win the national debate. >> henry, let's talk about the ground game in ohio. who has the advantage? >> it's tough to say at this point. the obama campaign never left after 2008. they like to tell us that. they like to remind us of that. the romney campaign has been on the ground since the primary was over probably in april. they had a lot of catching up to do. they are stressing their door knocking capabilities. they've knocked on over a million doors in ohio. it's tough to say. the obama campaign has a superior ground game. they were heavily involved in a ballot issue a year ago. that was seen as a scrimmage for 2012. and right now we're just waiting to see who's turning out the early vote fast enough. >> but it seems like president obama has the sense there, that's what experts say. we just talked to michael mcdonald. it seems that way. do you think it's the thing that has enough with the wind at its back to carry him? >>
a few weeks ago, and mrs. romney has been here. i am not privy to some of those decisions. host: not much of the president and vice president since the attention -- convention. why is that? >> more than 50 field offices, thousands of volunteers have been going around, knocking on doors, making phone calls. we are a bottom-up campaign. we understand this is going to be one on election day. i am proud to be associated, and i am confident we will have a victory. >> josh, you are from one area. among them, chester, monroe, and another county. why are these so critical to both campaigns in november? guest: if you look at the poll that came out, president obama has a lead in the five-county areas. he has maintained that leads throughout in all of the various polls. i think the extreme positions of mitt romney, a woman's right to choose, number one, really puts him at odds with the moderates and stability in pennsylvania, and i am confident that the numbers the president will show in the suburbs will propel him to victory in pennsylvania. host: as you know, pennsylvania was referred to
of view when it comes to the election but those are the numbers right now. >> mr. romney has been pointing out that the unemployment rate is higher -- by .01%. >> you say a war, it misses the whole story, the whole drama. >> john harwood, it feels to me that we're going to spend most of the weekend in spin class, if you will, as both sides try and spin these numbers for their own purposes. >> well, i do think it is a little bit late for spin. i wouldn't -- i agree with steve, i don't think this report is a game changer, positive or negati negative, for the president. we've seen even before the last report when the jobless rate went down below 8% to 7.8%, it did not move the needle very much in terms of the presidential race. our country is very polarized. 90% of the people have already made up their mind who they are going to vote for. the idea we are recovering economically but very slowly in a manner in which there are millions of people still looking for jobs is baked in to everybody's expectations. i think this gives the president a grace note to close his campaign on, not likely to ma
. [ cheers and applause ] he said that's the flag at the end of the table here by mr. romney. i reached over, grabbed the flag, pulled it out. it was as if electricity was running through my arm. i thought of the people in our space program who have taken risk, put themselves in harm's way for learning, for pioneering, for knowledge, for us, for their fellow citizens. think of the men and women in our military, as the governor indicate t indicated, who serve our nation and put themselves in harm's way. [ cheers and applause ] plus, there's a verse in one of our national hymns i enjoy most. the hymn is "america the beautiful." the verse says "oh beautiful for heros proved in liberating strife who more than self their country love and mercy more than life." thanks to our veterans and all those that serve. thank you, also -- it [ cheers and applause ] thank you also to people of america's national character that serve in other ways that, serve in ways to exemplify something about our american spirit. that is that we live for things bigger than ourself. it seems to be part of our national charac
of that. should mr. romney went, it says if mitt romney wins next week, enough democrats would probably be left to block his promise to roll back wall street rules enacted in response to the financial crisis. romney would be expected to appoint new leaders of the treasury department, securities and exchange commission and other agencies that would take a less aggressive approach. instead of timothy geithner romney is expected to fill the position with a less activist nominee. in addition, a romney administration could leave some posts under weekend acting heads. florida calling in, tom on our line for independents. caller: i am voting for romney mack. i would like to see romney in the senate. i do believe he is out there with his friends having a good time. and you show me your friends are. host: a toss up when it comes to seats in the senate. 11 seats. arizona, connecticut, indiana, massachusetts, montana, virginia, wisconsin. massachusetts, this is -- on our line for democrats. caller: thank you for c-span. i am a democrat, and voting for obama. i am voting for elizabeth warren. i do
days to go. dagen: picking up something that mr. varney was talking about earlier. does this stall mr. romney's momentum? >> i lived in washington, d.c., you guys are in new york, i know a lot of the viewers are in places like connecticut and new jersey, i have never seen the private sector step forward so much. people are acting neighborly and charitably towards their fellow man. it is a great thing to see. we do not always need government to step in and solve these problems. most of the heroic things have been done by businesses, families and churches. president barack obama has dealt with this crisis. it did not hurt that the governor of new jersey, you know, had very complimentary things to say about him. we will see if this caused a bit of a stall in the bit from a momentum we have seen over the last few weeks. connell: we stopped to asking questions like that the past couple days, for obvious reasons. we try to look at these sites that aggregate the polls. on average now it is all tied up nationally. i am sure the national polls that it was as we get to the last few days. the pr
's insane. i think mr. mitt romney ought to be pushing back. >> as a quick extension, his idea instead of doing that with the economy back on its heels, raise taxes, which he will do if he gets reelected and impose more regulation on the economy. that's his solution to the problem we had before. >> i think the contrast in these closing arguments are very telling. obama decides to double down on the character assassination and class warfare, romney is talking bipartisanship, and he was a governor of a blue state. one sounds more presidential than the other. >> paul: the president is throwing out attempts to say, well, i'm going to get a big budget deal with congress, i real want bipartisan immigration deal, hey, maybe, even tax reform. >> this is really important, yeah, because he's being very critical of romney and last weeks we're seeing the glimmer of hope and change obama and trying to get that back and the testament with independent voters and women and they voted for him in 2008 because, again, he claimed to be a new type of politician. i don't think this was working. it's falling
across the aisle in a bipartisan way and got things done. >> steve: okay. mr. romney has talked about that, how he, you saw him at the debates talking about it, 75, 80% democrats, versus him, the lone republican governor. >> eric: fox news had a poll two nights ago that came out and found that 60% of people polled were interested in the economy and fiscal issues as their most important issues. mr. baker is on target with that. >> gretchen: let's talk about that working across the aisle. here is mitt romney. >> you want to see four more years with washington in gridlock? >> no. >> look, i know that the president wants to see four more years and that's his chant, four more years, four more years. our chant is this: five more days. all right [ cheers and applause ] by the way, i think i'll ask the leader, leader cantor, when was the last time you met with the president on the economy and jobs and the budget? he says almost a year. >> steve: meanwhile, it seems like the campaign has been going on for almost a year, actually longer. now it's down to not five days. it's four days. >> eric:
election, mike huckabee is out in columbus, ohio with us. mr. governor, big day yesterday for mitt romney. he had 30,000 people energized at an event there in ohio. one of the reasons people are excited about him he has a plan for the economy. if you look at the unemployment number yesterday it went the wrong direction. up that frar 8%. it's at 7.9%. >> steve, i will be honest with you, i think the message if i were an employer, and i am. what i say to employees is simply this. if you really want to keep your job, you need to hope barack obama doesn't keep his if you are determined that he needs to keep his you need to be prepared to lose his. if he is reelected what you have had the last four. the numbers haven't improved. many cases gotten worse because his policies are antibusiness. i know that sounds harsh but it's the hard reality. when you continue to threaten people with higher taxes, increased cost of regulation. government intervention you scare employers from wanting to hire anybody. >> gretchen: one of the words tossed about this morning is stagnation when you look at the joble
change and prosperity if mitt romney is elected. and one of the new criticisms that mr. romney says, you heard is the reference to the president's rhetoric on the trail yesterday. mr. obama was talking about g.o.p. policies on the trail and the crowd began to boo. and he said, don't boo, vote, voting is the best revenge. and romney, as you heard there a moment ago picked up on it saying, the president has now reduced his campaign to small things and attacks, whereas what romney argues notwithstanding his own attacks of president obama, is that he's offering hope and change. borrowed rhetoric from the 2008 obama campaign itself perhaps, but none of less, in that completion of his rhetoric about obama and revenge, he says, what he hopes people do is vote for their love of country. all about a positive close, notwithstanding again, the criticisms implicit and explicit throughout the stump speech in what is now 82 hours before the first polls close on the east coast tuesday night. we'll send it back to you in new york. >> brian: carl, i know you've got a sense of people on the ground that mc
and the president off the campaign trail today, although we hear that perhaps he's going to -- mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea, nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i've got a job to do here in new jersey that's much bigger than presidential politics and i could care less about any of that stuff. i have a job to do. i've got 2.4 million people out of power. i've got devastation on the shore. i've got floods in the northern part of my state. if you think right now i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> brian: i got to ask you, do you have enough firefighters and rescue people? are you asking for help from other states at this point if people are watching electric a state that's not affected, can they -- is there a place for them to go if they have the skills you need? >> sure. we are getting a lot of help. governor daniels from indiana sent us 22 fully staffed ambulances to help us move folks out of hospitals. they needed
in pittsburgh just one year ago -- one week ago. mrs. romney has been here. why are they not spending money here? i don't know. i'm not privy. host: josh shapiro, not much of the president or vice president since the convention. guest: have been preparing for victory for more than a year. 50 field offices, thousands of volunteers going around knocking on doors, making phone calls. we are a bottom-up campaign. this will be one on the field in election day. i think the president as an organization second to none that i'm proud to be associated with. i'm confident we will have a victory on november 6th. host: josh shapiro, you're from the philadelphia area. bloomberg has a number of key counties to look at, among them chester, a lehigh, and others. why are these so critical to the campaign in november? guest: chair gleason will agree that the swing areas likely in the suburbs. montgomery county, that represent on the board of commissioners, is the largest among them. when you look at how that area has swung in past elections, that determines the winner. if you look at the poll that came out today,
. it's great to be with you. >> steve: great to have you. so after a couple of days that mr. romney has for the most part taken off due to the circumstances of the big storm here in the northeast, it's game on again today. he's going to be traveling with you and also former governor bush and marco rubio and what is his message to florida? >> i think his message is the same one he's been talking about for a long time. that's jobs and the economy and how to get this country moving again. there are a lot of people down here in florida who are hurting. their homes are upside down and their loans, they can't find work. there is 820,000 floridans out of work, more who have stopped looking for work. so it's about how to get job creators back into the game of creating jobs. you do that by lower taxes, lower regulations, and putting our faith and trust back into the people of the state of florida and this country instead of more and more government. that's exactly what mitt romney has been talking about. if i could real quick, i want to let everyone know that here in florida, our hearts and pray
. host: democrats line, go ahead. good morning. i was calling in to say that mr. romney wants nothing -- he wants for nog and that he is just -- nothing and he is just running for president for power. if he is elected we will go back to being barefoot and pregnant and the states as they're going right now are going to start becoming small countries if power is given to them. and people in the south will see the civil war type situation. >> we were talking about gender issues. do gender issueses whatever factor into voting there in wisconsin? host: sure, like anywhere else they go into i think the way people line up in both parties and i don't know if that's more true or less true in wisconsin than any other state but they're part of the debate here, sure. host: our independent line. caller: is this for me now? host: yes, go ahead. caller: i wasn't sure because you didn't list it properly. this is ken. host: we're running out of time. go ahead. caller: i wanted to mention i think there is a problem with semantics in this cub country and what i mean is everybody looks at the romney as h
